Abstract

Abstract: We use HIV testing history of persons newly diagnosed with HIV through HIV partner services to identify persons who might not otherwise have tested. Seventeen percent had never been tested, 44% had not been tested in the previous 2 years, and none had been tested routinely. These data demonstrate that HIV partner services were successful in reaching persons who may not have initiated testing without this service.
